It goes without saying that the current state of American metal is more than diluted with by-the-numbers metal bands trying to the ride the wave to financial success. What’s worse, and even more disheartening, is the fact that many of the bands who pioneered this trend of “metalcore” are remaining just as stagnant as their trendy protégé. With losing their original vocalist and lyricist Jesse Leach, and subsequently all credibility along with, Killswitch Engage is no exception. Not only have they stuck to the status quo musically, but the band doesn’t seem to mind taking several more steps backwards thanks to their vomit-inducing lyrical abominations courtesy of Leach’s cheeseball replacement, Howard Jones. Those who have been keeping track, however, remember better times since passed.
